As this book began, I stated, "Wouldn't it be great if there were an actual set of directions for how to live in this world that seems so full of the unexpected?" And, then, I answered through ideas garnished from my experience. - experiential observations of synchronicities and epiphanies, which this notebook has established IS communication from Higher Self/God (this is outlined in the master's paper, titled "Knowing Enlightenment Now, which is located on the Home page of this website). I stated that I knew, honestly and deeply within myself that I am exactly where I need to be, in every moment, living my highest passion, to the best of my ability, following my highest excitement, until I could take it no further - and, with no insistence or assumption as to the outcome.
For further evidence of this effort, please look and notice the work. Every bit is an example of this type of pursuit. My journeys within meditation were initially fueled by immense, perceived grief, which is stimulus enough for the re-working of one's inner landscape. This notebook is an example of the passionate, positive pursuit to know, through objective and subjective observations of all experiential inner and outer data, and is deconstructed to a positive state, serving Higher Self's path toward It's Realization. This is the pursuit of God in 2020, defined by Kora Bales, through meditation. Because I see there is a Higher Origin, and know first-hand that we are all able to know it - but just don't know how that is yet - I am sharing what "I" do know, as it is experienced.

The Spiritual Body-Suit Assignment
So, to understand the Spiritual Body-Suit and Ascension, the concept of "Higher Self" must be understood. When one forms the concept of "Higher Self," within oneself, he is now on the Ascension Path. The life expression becomes known-to-self, and the natural evolution of the life synchronistically begins. The directions are now before you, as once Higher Self is realized, things are now improved. Ultimately, life is wonderfully changed because you have realized who you really are.
What is Higher Self?
Simply, it is Love. Any and all expressions of the unconditional devotion to this Form, within one's daily life, is noticed by all parts of one's self. Love begins within self. For example, the simple act of writing "Are you being positive?" on a sticky-note, and pasting this on the refrigerator (where I know many people linger), is a reminder every time you feed yourself of your own intention. It is convicting.
What is conviction?
"Convicting," according to Dictionary.com, means "A fixed or firm belief," and when we reflect to ourselves through these small messages left in love and light of Spirit, we see the answer through that Higher Love expressed within the question. This expression is personalized through the ego, and for our own experience. From here, is the navigation of self through belief-deconstruction, because if the answer is not, "Yes, I am being positive... regardless of this or that," then we have inner work to do.
This is my understanding of Higher Self, established through meditative and physical-matter- reality experiences, and I describe it in broad strokes, so that you may see how I have done it. It is advised that through reflective mechanisms with meditation (by examining what occurs within the meditative/prayful state), a personal, working definition of your own be created.
Work to do.
So, Higher Self is Love, but there is still wonderful and worthy work to do. We meditate twice a day, for a half-hour or so. We have intent to work on building our inner platform/mansion through visualization efforts within one of these meditative sittings. We exercise the minds within self, and then we rest them in the Higher Presence within, through one-pointed focus upon the breath. We utilize whatever information excites us, and we observe its quality for Higher Insight. Further, we find pleasure in these pursuits, as they are private and special places within ourselves, to be with our own concept of Comfort/Insight/Love, or God, as we understand Him.
The Spiritual Body-Suit Assignment
Introduction and the ABC's of Spiritual Matter
I have learned through the use of the Monroe Institute's Hemi-Sync CD's, conceptual methods one may employ within the mind during meditation. These exercises are illustrative of the ABC's of working with spiritual matter: i.e., Assignment: Build Concept.
Through its use, and within devoted meditative time, body conceptualization will be reformed by building structures within oneself, as appropriate to the individual. Ultimately, this imagined suit, is representative of Higher energetic spiritual understanding. For myself, I built a Spiritual Body-Suit, based on the concept of "Spiritual Armor," in combination with ideas from studies of the "out-of-body" experiences of Robert Monroe and other authors listed on this website. It's purpose, ultimately, is to assist and connect with the platform/mansion, that you have created already in your "Build Sittings," and to learn to work within your own mind, in new ways, now.
Relaxation of the Body First
All meditation begins with relaxation. That said, one must understand that the body has spiritual, energetic lines of force within it, and these are echoed in physical matter reality as the neurological system. As one moves his consciousness upon and through the body, with a pause of the focused mind upon each part, the "building" energy is eventually discernible to the outermost mind. Observe your body carefully as you progress in the months ahead.
It is magical stuff, spiritual matter, so it can feel any way that is natural to you. Again, it will be a natural sensation that simultaneously occurs when using the one-pointed focus upon a body part.
Stretch fully, and then relax in a reclined position, but remember, the point is to achieve what is called the "mind-awake, body-asleep" state. The goal is to free the mind from the limitations of the physical body, so that one may build within himself.
Overall, we focus the conscious mind upon each body part, allowing the consciousness to be only experiencing and observing that part. Begin at the big toe of the left foot (count to three if you need to), and then move to the next toe. Complete the left whole foot, then move the focused mind to the right foot. Repeat. Back to the left calf/knee/thigh/hip - to -center, and back to the right right foot, pulling the energy upward, and allowing your conscious mind to linger on each part as you go up the body.
Complete this all extemporaneously, meaning off-the-cuff, always allowing time for your own personal mechanisms of behavior to be loved along the way. Once the whole body, from toe to head, has been experienced in this way, you are in an altered state of consciousness. You are now relaxed and prepared to build.
Go to your platform/mansion.
Imagine and create the most appropriate armor for yourself (I have found simplicity extremely useful, but do what is best for you). It may be a slim-fitting costume, or a simple energy matrix, like my own. Whatever your imagination delivers, accept it with gratitude - even if all you can muster is a perceived "dot" in the middle of your mind's eye, give thanks for that, but then gently begin again.
After you have spent 5 to 10 minutes visualizing, imagining and building the suit, while in this relaxed state, also, spend time looking at it. Reach out your energy arms (didn't know you had these? Well, look again!), and turn the suit and look at it. Reach out your imagined energy arms toward the suit and know its real. Then. put it on.
Overall, the purpose of the Spiritual Body Suit is to exercise the mind, allowing Real inner conceptualizations, that are also tools, to build toward Higher Insight. Ultimately, within the Higher Mansion of the meditative mind, there is now a suit that awaits, that when worn, is representative of effort toward Higher Things.
Note: Many sources talk of imagining bubbles around oneself, and this is easily done, but if you had the option to take the Ferrari or the Subaru, which would you select? (I own a Subaru, and they are very dependable vehicles). I selected the tried-and-true, dependable thing I know, that is also positive. My own suit is sleek and beautiful, silver, and made of the stuff of God! Now, how exciting is that!
To see the Light at the end of the tunnel, while smiling!
